What is Invisalign?
Discreet teeth aligners
Invisalign are clear aligners made of medical-grade plastic that straighten your teeth almost invisibly. They are a great option for people looking to straighten teeth that aren’t too crooked.
Faster and more comfortable than braces
Invisalign straightens teeth faster than braces do and are more comfortable as well. Unlike braces, they can be removed at meal times and when brushing teeth.
Perfect for teens and adults
Invisalign clear trays are a convenient option for teens and adults who want a perfect smile without an unsightly metal mouth marring their school, office and social interactions.
How Does Invisalign work
Each tray is usually worn for about two weeks, moving the teeth slightly into their desired position by applying the required amount of pressure to the correct spot on each tooth before getting replaced by the next tray.
Your dentist will schedule frequent in-patient appointments with you and monitor the movement of your teeth, ensuring they are aligning the way they are supposed to.
Which is better: Invisalign or braces?
Each malocclusion case is different, requiring a customised treatment plan. However, there are key differences between the two that can help determine which option is better for you.
Invisalign trays are removable and replaceable, which makes it easy to maintain oral hygiene and the appliance itself, while braces are fixed for the duration of the treatment, therefore are hard to clean around.
Invisalign is almost invisible, while braces, especially metal, can be unsightly. Furthermore, Invisalign trays can be removed while eating or for other short durations, but braces can’t be as they are fixed..

Is Invisalign covered by insurance?
Invisalign clear aligners are considered cosmetic dentistry and are not covered by dental insurance.
What are the requirements for Invisalign treatments?
You can get straighter teeth with Invisalign if you fulfil the following conditions:
- you don't have severe malocclusion
- you have all permanent teeth
- you are responsible enough to wear them for 22 hours daily
- you go for all follow-up appointments
- you don't smoke
- you don't have tooth decay
Is Invisalign the same as traditional braces?
Invisalign clear trays are not the same as traditional braces. They are removable and replaceable invisible plastic trays that fit over teeth to straighten them in a shorter time than braces.
How do I get started with Invisalign treatment?
If you want to straighten your teeth, the first step will be a consultation with your dentist, who will examine your mouth to make sure you have healthy teeth.
How often do I need to wear my Invisalign aligners?
You will need to wear the clear aligners for around 22 hours a day, removing them only to eat and clean your teeth and the trays.
Can I eat with my Invisalign aligners on?
You will need to remove the trays at mealtimes. Wearing clear aligners while eating can damage and discolour them, make them dirty and hamper chewing.
Make sure you clean your teeth well before placing the trays back on. Food particles and other debris trapped between the aligners and your teeth will not only cause discolouration but also allow bacteria to grow on your teeth's surface.
How do I clean my Invisalign aligners?
Invisalign clear trays are easy to clean. Use a mild, uncoloured liquid soap and a soft-bristled brush to gently clean the plastic. Make sure the brush you use to clean your Invisalign trays is not used for anything else.
Is Invisalign an orthodontic treatment?
Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with straightening teeth and moving them around the jaw, so they align perfectly. Therefore, Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment.
What are the different types of orthodontic treatments?
There are four main types of orthodontic treatments:
- fixed braces which are cemented onto teeth at the start of the treatment and removed once it ends. They move teeth with pressure applied by wires or bands.
- removable braces are plastic plates that lay against the roof of the mouth and clip onto a few teeth to align just a few teeth and not the whole mouth.
- functional appliances, which are connected or separate plastic braces which fit over teeth and bring them into place.
- head gears are not exactly appliances used in orthodontics but are used in tandem with braces to realign the jaw.
What happens when Invisalign treatment is over?
Once your teeth have been brought into the desired positions, your dental team will discontinue the clear trays treatment, but you will be given a retainer to wear for a certain number of hours every day; most people choose to do so at night when they are sleeping, so the retainers don't disrupt their routine.
Retainers are recommended post any braces treatment because the gum tissues are still elastic and will pull back to their original position if not retained in place, undoing the realignment of the teeth.
